Dryer Vent Cleaning Sterling Wizard Explains the Important Role Played by Dryer Vents

The dryer vent is not included in the purchase of a new dryer; yet, it is the most important part required for proper function

 













Sterling VA – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard works to educate homeowners about the important role of dryer vents for safe and efficient dryer function. More than 17,000 dryer fires are reported annually with failure to clean dryer vents being the number one cause.

Doug Bittner, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard works to promote public awareness of the importance of dryer vent cleaning to prevent dryer fires and improve dryer performance. According to Bittner, one of the most important functions of a dryer is the elimination of moisture recovered during the heating of wet laundry. The humidity produced from the moisture held in the warm air is normally expelled to the outdoors through the dryer vent. Poor ventilation causes longer drying time which leads to higher energy bills.

Service technicians with Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaningsterlingva.com/) explain how moisture can condense into pools of water in the dryer duct and cause excess humidity in the home leading to mold and mildew damage. Lint accumulates in the moist sticky areas and forms a clog in the system, blocking airflow needed for efficient function. Regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning is the solution.

Another important function of the dryer is heat used to dry tumbling laundry. Restricted air flow can cause the dryer to over heat. A spark from inside the dryer can ignite the flammable lint accumulated in the back of the dryer and the dryer duct causing a rapidly spreading fire.

Here are some additional facts the Wizard shares with his customers:

• Clothes dryers can be found in 80 percent or 81.5 million homes in the U.S.
• A full load of wet clothes contains about a half gallon of water
• Clothes dryers are one of the most expensive appliances in the home

Consumers who have dryer vent service performed by the Wizard notice faster drying time, reduced energy bills and improved dryer performance. Dryer vent cleaning is important maintenance to extend the life of the dryer and eliminate the chance of breakdown.

The Wizard reaches out to young people to help them avoid the common pitfalls of leaving the nest and beginning life on their own

 












Sterling, VA – Dryer vent cleaning is a very important; yet, often neglected home maintenance chore. Over 80 percent of American homes have clothes dryers and only about 20 percent of the people are aware of the importance of dryer vent cleaning service. Doug Bittner, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard knows this leaves a large percentage of home owners in danger of experiencing a dryer fire.

Dryer Vent Wizard specializes in dryer vent installation, cleaning and repair while educating their customers about dryer fire prevention and energy savings. Poorly vented clothes dryers cause over 17,000 fires annually, resulting in deaths, injuries and property damage.

Young people striking out on their own have a lot to learn about leases, mortgages, insurance and property maintenance. Doug Bittner, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://sterling.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) understands this, so he spends extra time with young residents, educating them about maintaining their dryer vent system. Doug has noticed that many young homeowners are concerned about maintaining their gas furnace, believing this to be a potential danger. Doug explains that the clothes dryer is more likely to cause a fire than any other appliance.

When Bittner performs a dryer vent inspection, he finds a problem with 9 out of 10 systems. Though failure to clean dryer vents is the number one cause of dryer fires, improper dryer vent installation can also be a contributor. There are many common errors that well-meaning homeowners and handyman services make when installing a dryer vent system.

Doug is especially concerned about young people just getting started in their own homes or apartments.

Sterling Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Provides Vital Service to Make Home Healthier

Few people realize that the dryer vent system is an unknown source of allergens lurking in the home

 











Sterling VA – The Sterling Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard provides an important service to make homes healthier by addressing a common problem in the laundry area. Many people are becoming more health conscious these days, but they overlook a main source of allergens lurking behind the dryer or in the dryer vent system. Indoor air quality can be improved by having an inspection performed by a dryer vent service professional.

Over time, fittings which securely hold the dryer vent hose in place work loose. When this occurs, problems can follow, especially for allergy sufferers. Heated, moist air escapes into the home rather than out through the dryer vent making a breeding ground for all sorts of mold and bacteria. Regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning will eliminate this problem. The Wizard will perform a complete inspection and make necessary repairs to the dryer vent system.

The Wizard provides a vital service with education as he explains how restricted air flow leads to dryer problems. Decreased air flow caused by clogged dryer vents allows humid air to vent into the home. This condition is also a leading cause of dryer fires. Dryer vent cleaning service by the Wizard will eliminate the hazard and improve dryer performance.

Doug Bittner owns Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.NorthernVirginia.DryerVentCleaningNow.com), specializing in dryer vent systems only. His main focus is creating a safe and efficient dryer vent while educating the customer. Though fire prevention is his major concern, he also explains how a dryer vented through the ceiling can be a potential threat for the allergy sufferer. Moisture can enter the vent and soak into the lint clog to create a breeding ground for mold and bacteria that can escape into the home. Dryer vent cleaning service removes the threat and improves dryer efficiency.

Some older homes vent the dryer through the floor into the crawlspace creating a hazardous condition. Hot, moist air and lint vented into the crawl space or basement is a virtual breeding ground for allergens inside the living space. A dryer vent service technician can address and fix these problems as well as the potential for a fire in the crawl space or basement of the home.
